Free alcohol rehab Wales  

It is extremely difficult to access free alcohol rehab services in Wales and across the UK. Some religious institutions provide free rehab clinics such as the Salvation Army's rehabilitation centres.  

The NHS provided community drug and alcohol rehab services, but the programme is not effective enough to handle issues chronic drug or alcohol addictions.  

Access to residential treatment via the NHS is extremely difficult. Your GP can help you apply. You'll have to meet the eligibility criteria for obtaining an NHS funded residential treatment.

There's a long waiting list as many patients seek government support for drug and alcohol treatment.  

Your addiction may worsen leading life-threatening events as you wait for an NHS drug and alcohol treatment option. 

NHS Alcohol Rehab or Private Alcohol Rehab

Home and outpatient treatment options in Wales 

Private rehab services may be expensive to some people. Yet, it's important to note that treatment centres do offer flexible payment options depending on your budget.

Residential treatment increases your chances for sustaining recovery in the long-term.  

In addition to this, home and outpatient rehab is recommended for people with low-risk drugs or alcohol use disorder.  

Those with low-risk addictions can get home detox in Wales at around £1500. During a home detox, you'll be provided with medications to help you better manage the withdrawal symptoms.  

The downside with home detoxification is that you don't get 24/7 medical supervision and support as you would in a residential rehab.  

Outpatient services in Wales are also affordable. Expect to pay an upwards of £1,400 per week for outpatient rehab.  

What is the average cost of a private alcohol rehab in Wales? 

Different rehab clinics offer recovery services at different costs. The price of private rehab in Wales depends on several factors such as location, type of facility, type of addiction and duration of treatment.

You're likely to see advertisements of cheap medical detoxification services. However, you should be cautious of such ads especially if the price seems inconceivable.

NHS vs. Private Rehab in Wales 

Government cuts to NHS services have rendered it near impossible to get recovery services through the NHS.

You cannot get specialist help for your drug or alcohol problem through the NHS. The process is long and daunting, with a slim chance. 

NHS provides community drug and alcohol rehab services in Wales. It's only in exceptional cases that the NHS offers inpatient alcohol detox.

To get a chance at NHS rehab, you or your loved one must register with your local drug and alcohol rehab centre.  

Sadly, the criteria and waiting list are too long, and your family member may succumb to the severe consequences of addiction without getting help. 

The latest statistics show that nearly a fifth of Welsh drinkers (19%) engage in heavy drinking. This is higher than England, which is 14%. 19% of adults in Wales drink more than the recommended 14 units per week.  [2]

Sadly, the prevalence of drinking is highest in the most deprived areas in Wales. 

In 2019-20 there were 23,887 referrals into substance misuse services [3].  

A further 2,186 did not attend before the assessment. In the same period, the number of clients assessed for problematic drug use was 8,792 compared with 9,310 with problematic alcohol use. Only 15,796 clients started treatment in 2019-20.  

The highest substance abuse cases in rehab were cocaine, amphetamines, heroin, alcohol, and Cannabis [3]. 84.1% of people who completed the rehab process reported improved quality of life. 

Provisional data for England and Wales reports that in 2020, there were 7,423 alcohol-specific deaths (13.0 per 100,000 people). This is a 19.6% increase compared with 2019 (6,209 deaths; 11.0 per 100,000 people) and the highest annual reported case since 2001[4]. 

Undoubtedly, the severity of substance misuse in Wales and across the UK warrants quality, professional services that will facilitate long-term sobriety.

There are a variety of private rehabilitation options that offer treatment that's tailored to your needs.  

Private rehabilitation services provide you with: 

  • Comprehensive alcohol or drug assessment with a dual diagnosis for mental health.  
  • A medical assisted detox programme 
  • An individualised alcohol or drug rehabilitation programme. 
  • Urgent admission to alcohol or drug rehabilitation (where required). 
  • Sober transportation 
  • Mental health services.  
  • Pre-booked alcohol or drug rehabilitation admission date. 
  • An individualised alcohol or drug rehabilitation programme. 
  • Short-term or long-term recovery programmes. 
  • Inpatient and daycare addiction rehabilitation options. 
  • Sober living and supported housing in Wales. 
  • Continued support through your course of recovery, including post-rehab support. 

The typical price of a ten-day residential service is around £3,000. Most rehabilitation centres offer flexible payment options, and you can reach out to your provider in total confidence without worrying about costs. 

Rehabilitation support and aftercare planning in Wales 

Rehabilitation support and aftercare is integral to achieving long-term sobriety. Most treatment centres offer free aftercare for up to a year, with some extending it to 18 months.

This form of support and continuing care after rehabilitation is important to reduce the chances for relapse.  

During your last stay at the rehabilitation facility, you'll work with a professional to craft a relapse prevention plan. The plan will detail the aftercare and rehabilitation support that you'll receive once you leave the facility.

The plan might include attending alcoholics anonymous, Narcotics anonymous or meeting with a counsellor.  

Life after rehabilitation requires you to make lifestyle changes.  

These changes may include keeping of friends with addiction. You'll also have to keep away from tempting environments to avoid triggers. The changes your required to make are difficult but in will benefit you in the long run
